Actor Taye Diggs recently said that The Best Man may become a television series. It was during a special feature of CBS’s The Talk, that the actor and author made the exciting news for fans of The Best Man franchise, as The Jasmine Brand reports.
Diggs was asked if The Best Man 3 will come to fruition. “I do think it will happen. We’ve been in discussions with the director Malcolm Lee. I think it might end up being a TV series, maybe on a streaming platform,” Diggs said. “But the script has already been written, so we’ll see.”
Diggs then went on to say that he’s unsure of when production will kick-off for the possible series, and that he’s waiting on Malcolm Lee for the green light.
The Best Man first premiered in theatres in October 1999, starring Morris Chestnut, Taye Diggs, Nia Long, Terrance Howard, Sanaa Lathan, Harold Perrineau, Monica Calhoun, and Melissa De Sousa.
The film became a cult classic, and in 2013 the sequel Best Man Holiday was released. Shortly after, there were talks of producing a third installment of the movie’s franchise. However, things were halted.
